Hardenvale – our home in Absurdia is a real-scale, immersive, house-like environment by Australian artists Catherine O'Donnell, Kellie O'Dempsey and Todd Fuller.
Through drawing, projection, built form, sound and movement, this collaborative project references the architecture of post war fibro housing as well as spaces the group describe as 'the cultural fringe of Australia'. Crossing three generations, these artists’ re-imagine lived domestic space while expanding the practice of drawing to create an intimate and unsettling experience. Harvesting images from personal narratives of imperfect moments (both familiar and strange), Hardenvale is a humble dwelling made from drawing in which to spend time. This installation invites visitors to reflect on their own experiences and memories of home.
